Costume Information

General
Cost : £130ish
Time Taken : Made over 2 months

Description
This is probably my favourite, best and most worn costume and was made for the Wessex "Fangirl Fantasy X" skit. I lavished detail on this one, right down to the studs on the belt loops on his sleeve and the scaled design on his belt.

His Body armour is leatherette sewn onto a body-T in segments with extra pading underneath and gold cord sewn into the seems and was probably the hardest part of the costume to make.

His sword is almost entirely carved foam sheet and is very light despite being 6 and a half foot long!

Originally I even used prosthetic putty and facepaint to show his scar but that doesnt show up very well. I also dyed my hair black, the colour was only supposed to last a month but hung around for at least half a year!! I cosplayed lots of black haired characters in that time :P

Overall I'm very pleased with how this one came out although it did have a tendency to slip off my shoulder.

Update 08/08

Auron Lives... and has been secretly snapped by the paperatzi in the garden. Dissapointed that I forgot a few simple touches for this shoot, but the costume is still in fine nick. Auron, errr......lives!?

Ahhh James' quintessential costume. The one he was born to make. :P

Still the best Auron in the West I reckon! (This sentence makes me think of a Cowboy Auron... that's awesome)
